9:37 pm
from the friends yet the library claims there was 5.1 million donated from the friends. the library admits no documentation to support that figure no information available one year later. not only does this claim violate the branch library figures but if these figures are true it shows the friends only donated 4.9 million over an 11 year period would themselves be a lie. can you imagine in other institution in the city where a private organization is given a license to sell naming -- [inaudible] the entire record is clear the library commission endorses a president found guilty of official misconduct.
